An administrator is using Auto Deploy to create several ESXi 6.x hosts that will be connected to a vSphere
Distributed Switch. After the hosts are deployed, the administrator notices that LACP packets are not being sent
between them.
Which statement best describes why this issue is occurring?

LACP is not enabled on the vCenter Server.

The LACP support settings do not exist in the host profile.

The LACP installation bundle is not included in the image profile.

LACP has not been configured on the Auto Deploy server.

LACP only works with IP Hash load balancing and Link Status Network failover detection.
LACP is not compatible with iSCSI software multipathing.
vSphere only supports one LACP group per distributed switch, and only one LACP group per host.
LACP settings do not exist in host profiles.
LACP between two nested ESXi hosts is not possible.
LACP does not work with port mirroring.
